BTC #7: Glenburgie 1995-2016, 21yo, 54.1% – Archives

So far, I’ve not guessed one distillery correct, and only got points for age and region. On one day I got points for the ABV because it wasn’t a cask strength bottling and we were informed the lowest ABV in … Continue reading

Two other Archives: Glentauchers and Glen Keith

The ‘non-Speyside’ whiskies from the recent Archives release are a Glentauchers 1996 and a Glen Keith 1992. Obviously both are from the Speyside region, but they aren’t marked as an undisclosed Speyside distillery. Both are a bit weird in regards … Continue reading

Glen Keith 1992, 21yo, 51.5% – Archives (Fishes of Samoa)

Glenrothes 1988, 53% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

Two more Archives samples to review. This is the second to last. I didn’t pick an order, I just randomly grabbed a sample from my bin. Of course, I selected the Archives first, since those were supplied by a company, … Continue reading

Bunnahabhain 1987, 50.2% – Archives, Fishes of Samoa

To follow up on yesterday’s cracking Deanston, I’m going through some more Archives bottlings until Friday. Today’s post goes to a 25 year old Bunnahabhain from a ‘Dark sherry cask’. Bunnahabhain is a distillery who’s product usually goes very well … Continue reading
